What was his fiancee's name?
"Polly Jenkins"... "Polly"!
Phoenix Wright
Exactly, Your Honor! He remembered the name of his fiancee who committed suicide. That's why he named his parrot after her!

Polly Jenkins was a woman who took her own life following a series of events involving her fiancé, Yanni Yogi.

Yogi's declineEdit

Main article: DL-6 Incident

In 2001, Jenkins was engaged to marry a man named Yanni Yogi, who was a court bailiff at the District Court. However, their life took a drastic change on December 28, while Yogi was at work. A dramatic trial had ended, and the legendary prosecutor presiding over the trial had suffered the first penalty on his record after being accused of falsifying evidence. Yogi found himself in an elevator with the case's defense attorney, Gregory Edgeworth, heading home with his young son Miles. While the three were in the elevator, an earthquake struck, cutting power to the courthouse and bringing the elevator to a halt. By the time they were rescued, Yogi and Miles were unconscious due to lack of oxygen, but alive. However, Gregory Edgeworth had died from a bullet wound. Yogi was soon accused of the crime.

In court, Yogi's attorney, Robert Hammond, argued that oxygen deprivation and stress had caused Yogi to suffer from temporary insanity. Yogi feigned brain damage to corroborate Hammond's argument, and he was acquitted. However, he soon found his life ruined by the decision, as he lost his job and social standing. Jenkins eventually committed suicide. Her memory was preserved in the name of Yogi's parrot. Yogi would continue to feign memory loss and senility in the years to come.

It wasn't until 15 years later that the true killer of Gregory Edgeworth was revealed to have been Manfred von Karma, the prosecutor who had been shamed with a penalty on that fateful day. Yogi himself was arrested for the murder of Hammond, whom he had killed as revenge with von Karma's help.


  • "Polly" is a stereotypical name for a parrot. It is likely that the names for both the parrot and Yogi's deceased fiancée were chosen for this reason.
